Little Italy Townhomes San Diego

Little Italy, located in downtown San Diego is a wonderful community enriched with character, charm and a sense of community unlike any other neighborhood in San Diego.  With an abundance of restaurants, cafes, wine bars, specialty stores and quaint boutiques, the Little Italy community has become a favorite destination for people who want to live in the city.

Living options in Little Italy range from high-rise condos all the way to historic single family homes.  Many people enjoy the views of high-rise living, but for others, the small floorplans, limited storage and lack of parking creates a challenge.  For these folks that are looking for a little something more than 600-1250 sq/ft, Little Italy townhomes are a great option.
